General Information

Reading diaries

These books are used as a home to school communication  and need to be brought in everyday. These diaries are looked at everyday by a member of staff and any accidents or incidences will be reported in these books for your information.


Library day is Wednesday, please return your child's library book every Wednesday even if you would like to keep it as it will need to be signed out every week.

Please share a book with your child everyday and record this in your reading diaries. If you have recorded reading in your diaries everyday the next week your child will be put into a draw and may win a book to take home and keep. 


In the summer term reading books and book talk book bags will be handed out to children on Wednesdays, each week the children will either get a reading book or a book talk bag. They will be changed once a week at the same time as the library books. 


PE will be on Thursdays or Fridays this can sometimes changed to staff training so we suggest you keep your child's PE kit in school all week.


Forest school will be on Thursdays or Fridays and wellies and waterproofs are needed as we will go out in all kinds of weather.


Home Learning 

Home learning activities will be sent home as stickers in the first week of each half term. We expect at least 1 piece of home learning to be shared on Tapestry or brought in each week. Feel free to do more with your child. 



At St-Margaret's we don't have paper Learning Journeys we use an online site called Tapestry. You will need to update your Tapestry app, you were given a sheet on how to do that at the end of Autumn term, but if you are having any problems please feel free to see a member of the EYFS staff to help you. This site allows you to share videos and pictures of any experience you and your child experiences outside of school, and not forgetting their home learning. 



Summer Term 


Our Learning Project this term is wonderful water.

The children are learning about the importance of water in our diet, health and for the importance of water in the environment. 


The children learnt how to clean their teeth properly and the importance of not eating too much sugar.  



we also made a chart of good and bad foods for our teeth 


As a bit of a Sparkling Start we drew and wrote postcards 



We have also been learning the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff for our talk for writing. We have started to change the Goats into other animals really thinking about going from small to large animals 

The story map looks like this 



Olivia has changed her animals to cat, unicorn and  TRex



Parker has turned his animals into mouse, lion and a rino

Creative writing week 


Wow what a wonderful week. 

We started our week with a visit to Limes School to watch the Puppet Theatre Norwich perform Thumbelina. 

We then spent the week writing profiles about ourselves to Thmbelina. 

We had to shrink them down as she is no bigger than your thumb. 

It was great fun learning about each other and also learning a lot about our new Head Teacher Mr Mo. 

Autumn 1 Learning Project 



This half term our learning project will be 'Tasty'. Throughout this term we will be exploring food through stories. We will be focusing on healthy eating and where food comes from. 


Our talk for writing is 'The Little Red Hen' - please see the link below for the story map. 


Our classroom has gone through another transformation to provide opportunities for your children to explore and discover lots about this new learning project.
